Know What Your Buying

Home inspections are still questioned by some homebuyers and investors? This is especially true when the home is newly built or renovated.

A home inspection is a critical part in getting to know what your buying regardless of whether the home is old, new or renovated.
Ask yourself two important questions – What do I need to know about the home that I am purchasing?  Who is looking out for my interest when it comes to the purchase of the home?

A homebuyer may minimize having a licensed home inspection based upon hearing buzz words that are common in the real estate industry like “new” “rehabbed” “totally renovated” “lots of upgrades” without even realizing how certain words can have an impact on the dicison making process.

Influences may also come from what is read about a property from real estate websites and other marketing media, all of which can affect how the real estate is viewed.

Home Warranties (or the lack thereof…)

Newly constructed homes and those rehabbed usually boast having a one year warranty and rightfully so, they should! It can take months living in a home before discovering issues that may be costly to correct. You’re at the mercy of construction professionals who’s job is to build or construct properties, however it is YOUR job to live in your investment as comfortably as possible. OUR job as your home buying advocate is to make sure that you have another set of eyes – one that has been trained to ensure your home purchase is as safe as possible and that you know what your buying!

Home Inspector Tip:

Foundation Crack  (vertical) – Consider an exterior crack repair process if you do not want to disturb your interior walls. It begins by coring a small hole in the earth at the crack location. After the crack is exposed and prepared,  a clay-like substance can be poured into the hole covering the entire crack. See waterproofing company in your area for help and assistance, such as, U.S.Waterproofing.
